I am up early and off to a good start for the week and I feel that I am getting myself back together, so that I might be able to pursue the things that God has called me to! (Hey, I am just a normal person with the same challenges and frustrations that everybody else has. I’ve just made the decision that I am not going to pretend like everything is perfect, because all that does, is rob me of the opportunity to take steps toward the perfection that God has for me.) My spiritual life is in line and learning. My physical is getting adjusted and seems to be ready to take some steps forward. My mental is excited about all that it has been able to take in and looking forward to even more in the days ahead.
A big part of my life right now is trying to incorporate the “Beatitudes” into my life. (See if you can spot them in the following paragraph!) I know that if Jesus took the time to share these words, then they must be important and if I can live the in the truth of what Jesus speaks, then I know that it will bring freedom. I realize and remind myself constantly that I am a sinner in need of God’s grace. I know that I have messed up and still mess up a lot – even when I don’t want to. (That is Poor In Spirit!) I also know that God loves me and desires to forgive me and will forgive me, if I am truly sorry and seek and ask for His forgiveness! (That is Mourning!) (I also need to forgive myself!)
I want to live the life that Jesus provided the example for – a life of gentleness. A life that learned to take it easy and does not get messed up. (That is Meekness!)
I am hungry and thirsty for the things of God, so I will keep on striving to obtain that which He has promised! To God be the Glory! He is at work and I can feel Him and I know that He is real! (That is Hunger & Thirst for Righteousness!)
